GOOD BLEND OF YOUTH AND EXPERIENCE EXPECTED FROM RED DEVILS

Hinsdale Central loves playing on their home court.  They've enjoyed it so much that they've played 12 extra overtime periods in the 12 games which they've participated in the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic.  The Red Devils will return a talented, experienced backcourt this year, with Matthew Rush and Danell Nicholson at the helm.  Rush, a 6-2 senior, was destined for All-HCHC honors last year until getting sidelined with an injury in tournament play.  Rush averaged 18.0 points per game for the Red Devils in his three starts in last year's Holiday Classic.  Danell Nicholson was a compliment in the backcourt, averaging 9.3 points per game in his four Christmas tournament starts in 2017.  Up front Central will look to a pair of juniors who gained valuable experience in 6-4 Matt Quast and 6-7 Ryan Isaacson.  Quast started all four HCHC games last year as a sophomore and Isaacson has seen his stock rise as a newcomer.


 

 




Matt Rush averaged 18 points per game at last year's HCHC.
